Oo'glog is an Ogress city and spa that plays an important part in the As a First Resort... quest. The bank and shops are not available until starting the quest, and the spas, which are the main attraction of the city, are a reward after completing the quest.
Oo'glog lies just south of the Feldip Hunter area, a popular destination for hunters and explorers alike. Reaching the city on foot is generally not an easy matter, unless you have 1 law rune, 1 air rune, 1 water rune, and level 10 Magic to teleport to Mobilising Armies then just simply walk east for about 30 seconds; the most common travel hub near Oo'glog is Yanille, which lies beyond the ogre capital of Gu'tanoth, the dangerous Feldip Hills, and the jungle itself. The sea borders the eastern edge of Oo'glog and the jungle to the west, while the area to the south is, as of yet, inaccessible.
Fortunately, more experienced players may utilise a number of methods to speed up travel to the area. Those that have reached a certain point in A Fairy Tale Part II may use the fairy ring coordinates AKS to reach the southernmost area of the Feldip Hills. A Gnome glider may also be used by those that have completed One Small Favour to reach the rim of the jungle.The Ogre Boat Ride can also be used upon reaching a certain point in Recipe for Disaster, and the Eagle transport system can be used to reach the jungle hunter area. Players with 29 Agility may also use the shortcut above the Mud bath to avoid the various aggressive creatures near the west entrance.
Many players consider the most convenient method to be via Charter Ship. Players that have completed As a First Resort... can use the ships, which can be found at most ports, to reach the eastern side of the city very quickly. The fastest method to get to Oo'glog is to take the Oo'glog lodestone. Before the lodestone update, the fastest method was to take the lodestone to Port Sarim and then to take the charter ship to Oo'glog from there.
The charter trip can be somewhat expensive, costing up to 5,000 coins depending upon the port of departure. (From Port Phasmatys, the cost is 2,800 coins.) The price can be halved twice if the player has done the Cabin Fever quest and is wearing a Ring of charos. (From Port Phasmatys, the cost can be lowered by these methods to only 700 coins.)
Another fast method is to use a Spirit tree, a Ring of duelling, or the Mobilising Armies Teleport in the regular spellbook to teleport to Mobilising Armies Command centre and run to Oo'glog from there. There are many medium-level monsters between the centre and Oo'glog, but Protect from Melee can be used to avoid all damage with prayer points then being recharged at the spa's sulphur spring.
With the update lodestones, the new fastest way to get to Oo'glog is to just unlock the lodestone.
There are several spas or baths in Oo'glog. From west to east, these are:
|Bandos pool||Strange, copper-infused waters.||You feel the favour of Bandos wash over you.|
|The Bandos pool will mark players as followers of Bandos and none of his followers will attack them in God Wars Dungeon. The effect lasts for one hour. See also: God wars dungeon.|
|Sulphur spring||Smells like rotten eggs.||You feel serene after your rest. Your Prayer points have been restored.|
|The sulphur spring temporarily boosts Prayer by about 10% of a player's level as it restores Prayer points. This was the highest Prayer bonus given by any altar in RuneScape, but was replaced in December 2009 by the Senntisten Altar.|
|Salt-water spring||Bubbling water and salt of the earth.||You feel energised and hastened after your relaxing soak.|
|The salt-water spring allows for unlimited run energy by restoring run energy to 100% every second or so for a limited amount of time. Players get an in-game message that the effect has worn off. It will last approximately 10 to 25 minutes, possibly depending on the player's agility level.|
This bath is quite useful for any extended run errands such as doing Treasure Trails, Farming runs, Runecrafting, All Fired Up, Blast Furnace, Wilderness Warbands, Penguin/Star hunting as well as several quests. The effects of this spring are still active after death.
|Thermal bath||Ever been in hot water before?||You feel restored and invigorated|
|The thermal bath cures and gives temporary protection from the effects of poison, life point loss, and boosts players' life points above their maximum, by around 15-20%. This is similar to the Elidinis statuette in Nardah; the effect wears off 1 life point at a time.|
|Mud bath||Mud, mud, glorious mud.||After a bath in such luxuriant mud, you feel your Hunter skills are extra keen.|
The mud bath boosts players' Hunter level by 10% rounded down (making +4 the minimum for players with the minimum hunter level), making them more likely to catch hunter creatures. This boost will not stack with the boost from drinking a Hunter potion. The bath also temporarily removes the players' scent whilst hunting, therefore not needing to remove their scent from traps by using a lit torch.
Temporary effects wear off over the course of a few minutes, but these often last long enough to give the player significant advantages for a while. The life point boost degrades at a rate of 10 points per minute, and players may use the spas even if they have familiars summoned. When the player enters the spa, the familiar goes to the spiritual plane but returns immediately when the player leaves the spa.
There is a bank in the central area of the city. The bank is rarely used due to the fact that the Mobilising Armies bank is much more easily accessible, as it doesn't have a quest requirement and is much quicker to access through the duelling ring or spirit tree teleport. However, many players may still store items gained from Hunting due to the nearby hunting grounds, therefore making it an alternative to banks at Yanille or Castle Wars. The bank is usable just after starting the As a First Resort... quest.
There are three shops in Oo'glog. The shops are usable just after completing the As a First Resort... quest.
This shop is widely known to sell raw bird meat which is necessary to produce a Spirit Terrorbird pouch.
There is a salon where players may speak to Kringk for an ogre wig which costs 50 coins, or get a "facial" from Muggh (actually a lump of mud applied to your face that occupies the helmet slot). The facial looks like a large hand print over your face, and crumbles away when removed.
Red Sandstone mining rock
Though not within Oo'glog, a red sandstone rock is just north of Oo'glog. This is located northeast of the thermal spa and northwest of both the mud bath and the level 29 agility shortcut (rock passage). To mine it, you need level 81 Mining (you do not need to do the As a First Resort... quest in order to mine red sandstone). Mining red sandstone yields 70 mining XP per rock. Only 50 red sandstone can be mined per day. More red sandstone can be obtained by mining the Shooting Star and talking to the Star sprite, using the resourceful aura or by using the juju mining potion.
A potion flask is a container that can hold 6 doses of a potion, two more than a vial. These are made from robust glass, which can only be made in Oo'glog after As a First Resort.... One can mine red sandstone just north of Oo'glog. Robust glass is made by melting red sandstone in a robust glass machine, which can be accessed after the As a First Resort.... quest. Making robust glass has no Crafting requirement and does not grant Crafting experience. Making potion flasks has a Crafting requirement of 89 (boostable; but does not work with the assist system) and grants 100 Crafting experience per flask.
Near the west entrance of the city these creatures can be hunted:
Note: Only baby platypodes can be caught.
- Brassica Prime
- Chief Tess
- Rutmir Arnhold
- Salon customer
- Teplin Macagan
- Hot 'n' Bothered - Main music in Oo'glog before and during the beginning of As a First Resort...
- Shaping Up - Main music in Oo'glog about midway through As a First Resort...
- Spa Bizarre - Main music in Oo'glog after completing As a First Resort...
- Bish Bash Bosh - Jungle area west of Oo'glog.
- Though in the real world there is no universally accepted plural for platypus, in RuneScape they are called platypodes.
- Oo'glog was featured in the 2009 April Fools event where a person had to kick a cabbage from the farm near Draynor Village to Oo'glog, to be greeted by Brassica Prime, the little-known cabbage god.
- When using unlock hint for the music track 'Bish Bash Bosh', it says "This music was unlocked during As a First Resort... even though some players might have gone to the forests west of Oo'glog and not started As a First Resort...
- The Bandos pool lasts quite awhile, and it is known to last so long that people will be halfway through their bandos trip before they see it wear off in the chat box. A key element on a Bandos trip if you have access to this pool but are not bringing a bandos item.
- Prior to an update in 2009, familiars were not allowed in the spas, and the city's inhabitants would prevent a player from entering a spa while a familiar was present.
- The Coinshare, World Map and Tutorial update introduced a bug in which a player would become stuck in the Oo'glog pools without having any way of getting out. This was fixed the same day.
